Design Social Media Icons Into Your Music or Band Business Card

Music or Band Business Card

There are social networks specifically set up for the music and band industry that can be added to a business card that reflects where your fans and/or customers can find your music or  music videos.  In this case, we have included social media icons for Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Last Fm, Flickr and Youtube.  These are the social networks that are most likely used or are often used by bands or members of the music industry.  However, one can include any social media icons that they want.  The rule of thumb is to include only those that best reflect how you promote your business.

QR Codes can be incorporated as well, so that less text can obstruct the visuals included on the business card and yet your fans can have all the access to your contact information that they need.  In this concept card design, ( a preliminary proof) for a client, I have tried to include all of these graphic elements.  The QR Code is one of mine and I’ll be tweaking  the design in order to make sure the QR Code functions.

In any case, hope you find my latest design inspiring.
